Assistant Recorder

Sadly for the SOS Martin Orchard-Webb shall be stepping down from the role of Assistant Recorder, a post he has held for the last six years. Martin’s hard work and diligence over this time is much appreciated by all of us and he will be sorely missed!

Consequently we would love to hear from anyone interested in assuming this position. Tasks involve assisting the County Recorder by working in tandem, ensuring that the list of scarce birds reported (those requiring descriptions) is well maintained and up-to-date. Although the Assistant Recorder does not assess records, he or she will liaise directly (usually by email) with those on the Rarities Commitee, preparing batches of records for circulation and following up on them to ensure that they are assessed in a timely and efficient manner.

Interested parties are kindly asked to send an email to the following address :
